A woman, her two children, and one man suffered injuries following a White County head-on collision on U.S/Cleveland Highway. The accident happened at about 6 p.m. on Thursday, October 7th. According to a Georgia Highway Patrol trooper, drowsy driving appeared to have contributed to the collision.
The Georgia State Patrol Post 6 responded to the crash site north of Marvin Miles Road, just past the Hall/White County line. The investigators said the driver of a Chevrolet Silverado, Michael Anthony Parris Jr. of Cleveland, was in the northbound lane of the roadway when he crossed the centerline. The vehicle then struck a Chevrolet Tahoe, operated by Candice Bennet Nanney, 38, of Clermont.
The woman had in the car her 14-year-old daughter, Katie, and her 2-year-old son, Cameron. The teenager who sat in the front passenger seat suffered severe injuries to the lower part of her body and received treatment at Children’s Hospital of Atlanta. The toddler was in the backseat; he suffered a minor injury to his forehead.
Nanney and Parris Jr. sustained visible injuries, albeit non-life-threatening, in the White County head-on collision. The two drivers and the toddler received treatment at Georgia Medical Center in Gainesville. The GSP trooper heading the investigation suspected Parris Jr. might have fallen asleep behind the wheel but was not impaired. Nevertheless, he got cited for failure to maintain a lane.
